    home build not working. tryed everything???

    hi there

    ive re-built my comp, pritty much a new pc. everything powers on, all fans spin, hd spins (but doesnt boot by the sound of it), however on the moniter i get NOTHING. just "NO SIGNAL", the light is on orrange for standby. ive literaly replaced every component near enough. ive used

    ati 4870 / 7950gt
    p5b deluxe / p5vd2-mx se
    e6700 / pentium D 3.2GHz
    xms2 ddr2 800mhz ram / cheap 667 ram
    2 differnt hard drives. 1 with old os, 1 brand new. currently none pluged in

    the 1s b4 the / are the new items, the 1s after are the old, working pulls from my old build. psu is a 720w hiper type R.

    ive rebuild this system several times..... same result every time. im using the moniter from my old build, which worked fine, but even with ALL the old components put back, still no signal

    ive put both the 4 pin, cpu power cables in, both 6 pin gfx card cables, the big eatx cable (or watever its called) is in. ive gone though all the connections to make sure they are all in tight, still no luck. ive tryed clearing my cmos, even left it overnight. ive used the onboard gfx on my old crappy mobo, same result.

    the only thing ive got left to try, is to find another moniter, and try that. im pritty sure this wont help as it was working b4 i started messing with my computor.......

    any help would be greatly appreciated...... ive been close to putting my foot through it a few times

    so to summerise

    pc worked fine - changed all the compenents, now it doesnt - changed all the old ones back in, still cant get it to work

    thanks in advance

    the other sugestions centered around me having a case speaker..... which i dont im on a half hearted hunt for one atm

    Have you check that the Cmos reset button is not on? Also tried resetting the CMOS?

    Re: home build not working. tryed everything???

    Reading your post again, are the drives SATA or IDE and are the jumpers set correctly and (if IDE) the cables the right way round - red stripe next to the power connection of the HDD

    I have a pile of case speakers but I wont be in work until Wednesday if you can wait that long.

    If you're interested check the mobo pinouts and let me know what type of speaker you need. Drop me a PM with your address in and I'll post it out.

    Re: home build not working. tryed everything???

    The fact you can't get your old setup functioning again is somewhat of a concern. I was thinking of a few possibles until you mentioned that in your post.

    Two possibles I can offer.

    1. The only common component I can see is the PSU. There's a possibility it may have failed through static or simply shorting during you rebuild but at the same time it may have blown the fuse in your power lead.
    a) Build a setup minus drives - just enough to get to the BIOS and use a different power lead to test it.
    b) Borrow a different PSU but also with either a different power lead or one with a brand new fuse and try that.
    I have been in this situation before, including buying a new mboard only to discover PSU 1 had blown and taken lead 1 with it. So when I had tried PSU 2 with lead 1 nothing happened and I blamed the board! Oops

    2. Ensure the gfx card is seated correctly.
    You don't mention which case you have. I have an old now-unused case which is not square between the slots and motherboard tray. If you place certain addin cards into slot close to the gfx card - as you tighten the screws it lifts the gfx card out of the slot enough to prevent it displaying.
    Be absolutely sure it's in place.


    If I think of anything else I'll add it. Meantime if you get new symptoms please post them.

    Perhaps a bent pin on a cable (monitor?) somewhere?

    hmmmm

    the case i got is a cheap and chearfull x blade one. so it wouldnt suprise me if it was part of the problem. but then it worked before.

    http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=16834

    ive errrrr. modded it by cutting an extra fan hole in the bays where the cd drives go . done before the problems btw.

    i hope its not the psu that was damn expencive when i got it

    i think i might play around with a test bed / other moniter tomorow. i cant face looking @ it atm

    You have my sympathies if it is the PSU. I've despaired at the rising price of PSU's over the years because of the number of failures I've seen.
    In my experience cheap PSU's perform as well as you'd expect (I had one fail with a split fan after 14mths!) but equally I've had failures right from my first PC through to a £70+ Tagan.
    While many die from employing cheap fans which fail causing the PSU to cook, I had one die last week because of bad earthing to an Aluminium case it seems.


    Fingers-crossed it's not!

    hi guys.

    problem is now sorted so i thought id tie up this thread in case sum1 brings it up in a search or wateva.

    it turns out it WAS the motherboard...... i built the old one outside the case with cpu and ram and it posted. tryed it with the "new" one and it did not. installed the old one in the case and is currently working fine. im not sure why it didnt work the last time i tryed a reinstall the old motherboard....... just me being a spoon i guess lol

    hope i dont have any problems trying to return in on ebay..... its been a while lol.

    my e6700 is just CRYING out to be overclocked...... currrenly idoling @ 20c with a aftermarket heastsink :O ive seen 19c a few times. i think this chips a beast

    im just going to call this time a learning experience. from never having built a pc b4, to building the same one about 7 times, ive learnt a lot lol.

    ive now got to pick myself up a new board. going to go 2nd hand of ebay again (ill never learn) any ideas for a cheap overclocking baord???? as was mentioned in the old thread the pb5's only suport pci-e v1 or wateva its called...... so i might have dodged a bullit there, mite bottleneck my HD4870......

    id like to thank all that tryed to help me, especialy mycarsavw for his very kind offer.

    Re: home build not working. tryed everything???

    The Gigabyte GA-P31-DS3L was a good cheap overclocking motherboard a while back.Of course it had the same issue that all P31 based motherboards had - the motherboard was stable with only two of the RAM slots filled.

    Here are some reviews:

    http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.c...id=2183&page=4

    Newer choices would be the P43 based EP43-DS3L and EP43-UD3L:
